Two Palestinian teens were killed and eight people wounded by Israeli fire during clashes Saturday at the Gaza border fence, emergency medical services in the coastal enclave said.

Marwan Darbakh, 13, and an unnamed 15-year-old were killed east of Khan Yunis in southern Gaza.

The deaths come a day after similar clashes killed seven Palestinians and wounded 145 in the bloodiest fighting in the territory since the summer 2014 war.

Earlier on Saturday, a Palestinian stabbed two police officers outside the Old City in east Jerusalem before being shot dead by security forces, police said, in the second such attack in the same area Saturday.

The pair were in moderate condition, medics said, with a third seriously wounded after being shot by another officer attempting to take down the assailant.

The attack took place by the Damascus Gate, metres (yards) away from where a Palestinian teen stabbed two Jews before being shot dead by police earlier in the day.

Police identified the suspect as a 19-year-old Palestinian from Kafr Aqeb in east Jerusalem, the same village that was home to the teen suspected of carrying out the earlier Saturday stabbing.
